Robbie Ray was terrific in his 2015 debut, limiting the Rockies to one run over six innings to pick up the win in the nightcap of Wednesday's double-header.
Ray was called up from Triple-A Reno and occupied the 26th spot on the roster as a result of Wednesday's double-header, taking the place of the injured Archie Bradley. The Rockies couldn't get much going against him, scratching out five hits and no walks while striking out five times. Their only run came in the bottom of the fourth when Michael McKenry hit an RBI double to tie the game at 1-1. If the D'Backs need Ray to start again, he'll be on schedule to do so on Monday at home against the Nationals. May 6 - 10:05 PM

Robbie Ray is expected to be recalled to start in place of the injured Archie Bradley on Tuesday against the Rockies.

Can't ask for a much tougher test in his first start of the season, as he'll battle the lefty-mashing Rockies at Coors Field. While he could be worth a look in NL-only leagues, he isn't a mixed league streaming option for Tuesday's start.
May 1 - 8:34 PM

Robbie Ray fired three scoreless innings in Wednesday's 3-0 Cactus League win against the Reds.

Ray allowed one hit, walked two, and struck out three. The lefty has had a rough spring, losing out on a chance to join the starting rotation, but he reportedly remains in the running along with Archie Bradley for the final spot in the Diamondbacks' bullpen.
Apr 1 - 6:37 PM

Robbie Ray yielded two runs over three innings as the Diamondbacks lost 6-0 to the Rockies on Sunday.

Ray gave up five hits and a walk while striking out four, watching his ERA rise to 5.25. The lefty is one of several candidates vying for a spot in the Diamondbacks' starting rotation but his spring performance may leave him on the outside looking in.
Mar 22 - 7:43 PM

Robbie Ray struggled in his Diamondbacks debut on Friday, allowing two runs on two hits over his two innings of work against the Athletics in Cactus League action.

Ray also issued a pair of free passes and punched out one. The 23-year-old southpaw is one of many candidates trying to crack the Opening Day rotation and he'll need to show improved command and results if that's to be the case.
Mar 6 - 8:20 PM

Diamondbacks acquired LHP Robbie Ray and INF Domingo Leyba from the Tigers in the three-team Didi Gregorius trade.

Ray came over to the Tigers last winter in the Doug Fister deal and now he's on the move again. The 23-year-old struggled to the tune of an 8.16 ERA over six starts and three relief appearances during his first taste of the majors this past season and averaged just 6.7 K/9 in Triple-A, but he's not too far removed from being a highly-regarded prospect. The Diamondbacks are banking on his long-term upside.

Tigers recalled LHP Robbie Ray from Triple-A Toledo.

Ray holds a 7.09 ERA and 1.80 WHIP at the major league level this season. He'll be used in a relief role.

Tigers optioned LHP Robbie Ray to Triple-A Toledo.

Ray was shelled for six runs in just an inning and a third against the Twins. After the game, the Tigers sent him down to Triple-A to nurse his wounds. His numbers at the major league level are a bloated 7.09 ERA and 1.80 WHIP.

Robbie Ray gave up six runs in just an inning and a third against the Twins in a 20-6 beatdown on Friday.

Ray actually briefly held a 1-0 lead in this one after Ian Kinsler's first inning home run. That would not last. He allowed all six of his runs in a murderous second inning. In the frame, Oswaldo Arcia hit an RBI double, Trevor Plouffe hit an RBI double, and both Eduardo Escobar and Danny Santana hit two-run home runs. It's hard to analyze much here. The bombardment sent Ray's major league ERA to 7.09 Ray was optioned back to Triple-A following the loss.

Robbie Ray will start Friday against the Twins.

Ray has struggled in two outings since being recalled on August 12 and owns a rough 5.33 ERA and 1.66 WHIP across 25 1/3 total innings this season. The left-hander is not a good fantasy play, even against the Twins.
Wed, Aug 20, 2014 04:54:00 PM

Robbie Ray, making a start in place of the injured Anibal Sanchez, struggled against the Pirates, yielding four runs in five innings in a Tigers loss on Tuesday.

Ray only gave up six hits, but the Pirates made them count as four of them went for extra bases. The lefty also walked two and struck out five in an uninspiring effort. It was only the fourth start the 22-year-old rookie has made in the big leagues this season. He has a 5.31 ERA, 1.62 WHIP, and a 14/8 K/BB ratio in 20 1/3 innings. Ray will go up against the Mariners at home on Sunday.

Tigers recalled LHP Robbie Ray from Triple-A Toledo.

Ray will start for the Tigers on Tuesday night against the Pirates -- in place of the injured Anibal Sanchez -- and could remain in the major league rotation until Sanchez (pectoral) returns. Ray has not been dominant this year at Triple-A (or in the majors) and is doubtful to be a good streaming option in fantasy leagues.
Tue, Aug 12, 2014 04:38:00 PM

Robbie Ray will be called up to start on Tuesday against the Pirates.

He's taking the rotation spot of the injured Anibal Sanchez (pectoral). Sanchez is expected to be sidelined for 3-4 weeks, so Ray should stick around for a while if he pitches well. The 22-year-old holds a 4.70 ERA over 15 1/3 innings for the Tigers this season and has posted a pedestrian 3.72 ERA and 1.47 WHIP at Triple-A. There's long-term upside here, but fantasy owners shouldn't be in a rush to pick him up.

Robbie Ray is expected to be recalled from Triple-A Toledo to start the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Indians.

Ray has appeared in four games with the Tigers this season (three starts), posting a 4.70 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 9/6 K/BB ratio over 15 1/3 innings. He makes for an interesting streaming option against an Indians squad that has had their difficulties against left-handed pitching.
Sun, Jul 13, 2014 08:14:00 PM

Tigers optioned LHP Robbie Ray to Triple-A Toledo.

The move came after Ray gave up seven runs in 3 1/3 innings in Thursday's loss to the Rangers. He only lasted as long as he did today because the Tigers bullpen was tired going in (tired enough that Danny Worth was used to finish up the 9-2 loss). Ross departs with a 1-1 record and a 4.70 ERA. He impressed in his previous two starts, so he'll still be the choice to rejoin the rotation next time a SP gets hurt.
